Ahh September, eagerly awaited spring time!
I have five amazing things to show you this month and to celebrate spring, one of you has the chance to win all of them!
Natrapest Orange Guard. I am very excited to now have a natural alternative to pest control for all the crawling bugs! We haven’t had a pest spray in years and living in an old house, the cockroaches have started appearing in our downstairs area. The Orange Guard is totally natural – made from orange peel so it’s safe around kids and pets. It’s water-based, so it doesn’t ruin your paintwork. I also love that they use recyclable packaging and that it’s biodegradable. We will never use toxic pesticides again!
Sinchies. Okay so I am a bit slow on the uptake as it seems everyone in Australia has tried these except me! So the idea is that you use these reusable pouches to fill with homemade goodness instead of buying the expensive pouches of stuff at the supermarket that are full of rubbish! There are so many things you can fill them with and they are perfect for baby and toddler food. My 12yo made up some thermomix custard (we use coconut sugar to make it caramely) and took it to school. She thought they were cool! Now one of my first queries was are they free from BPA, Phtalates and PVC? And yes, they are!
Aromatherapy Salt Lamp. This gorgeous aromatherapy salt lamp from Inspire Me Naturally combines two of my greatest loves – essential oils and Himalayan salt! You just pop a couple of drops of your favourite oil in the top bit and it will diffuse from the heat of the lightbulb. There are so many benefits of salt lamps, including purifying the air, eliminating odours, reducing EMFs, enhancing the immune system, reducing stress and depression, increasing mental alertness, helping with sleep problems and also improving hay fever, asthma, allergies and sinus related problems! They work as natural negative ion generators when heated with the lightbulb. I know I always feel recharged after being around one for a few hours. Love!
Re-usable Bread Bag. I am loving my new bread bag from the lovely Rebecca at 4 My Earth. They are perfect for storing your homemade loaves of bread! They are okay to put in the fridge or freezer and they are really strong and durable. You can chuck them in the washing machine or dishwasher as well. Brilliant. Actually, I am loving the size of them so much, I think they would also be great for storing veges and other bits and pieces. No more plastic bags needed!
Tea Flask. Cheeki, who make my favourite stainless steel water bottles, have just released their new tea flask! Hello! What a perfect idea for taking to early morning kid’s sport or just to have a hot drink safely around the kids. It keeps hot for about 6 hours. The interior is made from stainless steel and the top is a BPA free plastic. You can use tea leaves as there is a stainless steel infuser included or just use tea bags. A brilliant way to avoid takeaway cups! Love.
